Manchester Art Fair

Without a formal training in art, Outside In were one of the first organisations where I started to find my feet and see that it was possible to have a career making art. Not only that it introduced to me the community of Outsider and Disabled Artists which has, and remains, very important to me.


It was a long time since I had been to an art fair and also a long time since I had made any work to suit an an art fair – my practice has changed somewhat over the years. It was great to be invited to show at Manchester Art Fair and it wasn’t something I had to think about before agreeing. It gave me an excuse to make work again – the kind I like where you can still clearly see the hand of the artist in. I like letterpress, my first love as an artist and cyanotype is a close second. I booked a weekend at the Arthouse in Wakefield, stayed in one of the accessible flats there and spent the majority of time making and experimenting alone in the print room. I ended up making a  whole new body of work. I loved the process, the physicality of printing, the smell the tactility. Part of my joy is that each print is unique, all similar but all with their slight differences.
